25 Years of The Legend of Zelda by WingJourneys 25 Years of The Legend of Zelda by WingJourneys
(Pst
it's the Zelda timeline)

\"Oh youth, guided by the servant of the goddess, unite earth and sky, and bring light to the land--\"

--and let the spirit of the hero fucking prevail .

ZeldaUniverse held a contest for a 25th Anniversary shirt and the prompt was: what does the 25th anniversary of Zelda mean to you?

My answer is a Saturday swallowed whole and that continuation of the Ballad of the Goddess up there.
Because it is only The Legend of Zelda that will make me slave away and sell my soul for the sake of a drawing.

And also, 25 years of Zelda = 25 years of Link being that valiant hero time after time after time. <3

Anyways. I'm glad I did this! I felt like I had to contribute to the 25th Anniversary of Zelda hooplah somehow so I think the hours I put into this was definitely worth it. I hope you like it! <3

Ah, is that supposed to represent both Four Swords and Four Sword Adventures? Because those are different games that take place at very different points in time.

I love the colors and how the strokes look messy but they fit the context of the work perfectly so that not all of the lines are so clearly defined, but it guides your eyes from the bottom to the top of the picture! Basing this off of the Zelda timeline may not have been the best step due to the fact that (and we all know this,) they're gonna end up changing it every other year saying that skyward sword WAS first, and now it's last, etc.(although the way you did it, hell, I'd believe it ANY day. ) I don't exactly think that anyone else could have depicted this as well as you did, here! The thing I love most about this is the water and the glistening behind the Link in front of the triforce. This deserves an award for SOMETHING and if it doesn't... you should probably sell it for a shirt design...
